Moongazing Hare/The Sunderland Wreck/Drowning Productions

Moongazing Hare are a project from Fano, a small Danish island in the Wadden Sea which plays an esoteric form of drone/neo folk and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Sunderland Wreck" which was released by Drowning Productions.

Sound effects are all nature oriented sounding drones with some distortion being put behind the music which captures a very esoteric vibe which fits perfect with the very long songs that are present on this recording.

Acoustic guitars are all primitive sounding riffs that utilize alot of finger picking and full chords along with some electric guitars that bring the distorted drone noises into the music while the synths bring a very dark ambient sound to the music.

Vocals and song writing are all absent from the recording except for a brief use of chanting being utilized on one song as well as a spoken word part on the last song, while the song themes cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, powerful and epic sound to it.

In my opinion Moongazing Haze are a very great sounding drone/neo folk band and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Better All The Time" and "The Body Of Christ". RECOMMENDED BUY.
